Stories of Rei-ki Healing from our Graduates

The essence of Rei-ki is pure, unconditional love

Ski Trips 1


Grace Fitzpatrick, Melbourne, Australia

On a weekend ski trip to Mt Buller (Victoria), my brother was skiing at high speed down a steep slope when the front of one ski embedded in a pothole, stopping him in his tracks and catapulting him high into the air. He landed several metres away on his right shoulder.

After the initial shock, he trudged back to the chalet pale-faced, supporting his right elbow with his other hand to alleviate the intense pain in his shoulder. He said it reminded him of a motorbike accident a decade ago which had left him immobilised for weeks.

Although he had been a ‘rei-ki skeptic’, he accepted my offer of healing, so I gently placed my hands on his injured shoulder. He immediately reported heat so strong it felt like a burn, then, as time passed, the sensations changed to tingling, pulling and pulsing, and numb followed by calm.

During the three-hour car trip home, I placed my hands on his shoulder and after an hour or so, I felt a strong relocation movement in the joint and heard a loud ‘clunk’, which he said was the second time – a rather amazing experience for us both.

The next day he reported his recovery was almost unbelievable – just a slight ache, like a stiff muscle after exercise, but not serious. The day after he felt nothing – no pain, no discomfort, nor restriction of movement in the shoulder – as if the accident had never happened. However his left shoulder, which we had ignored, ached a little, so we dealt with that on the spot.
